Mende: inauguration of new facilities at the Faculty of Education

On May 7, the Faculty of Education at the University of Montpellier marked a significant milestone in its history with the inauguration of new facilities on the Mende site. An investment of €1,115,230 for these major works, entirely financed by the Conseil départemental de Lozère with the support of the French government.

Improved accessibility for people with reduced mobility with the creation of an elevator, increased capacity for certain training rooms, coherent premises for the student residence, fire-standard compliant interior staircase... These are just some of the improvements now available to students, staff and professors at Mende's Faculty of Education. These major works, financed by the Conseil départemental de Lozère with the support of the French government, required an investment of over 1.1 million euros.

Promoting personal development

Inaugurated in the presence of Philippe Augé, President of the University of Montpellier; Philippe Castanet, Prefect of Lozère; Sophie Pantel, President of the Lozère Departmental Council; Agnès Perrin-Doucey, Director of the Faculty of Education and Stéphane Amouroux, Deputy Director and Head of the Mende site; this event marked the development of an ambitious project which will continue with the fitting out of a large-capacity room to house a learning laboratory in the near future.

These facilities are essential to meet a wide range of training needs, such as innovative teaching methods, digital applications and music/body/voice teaching. Students living in the Faculty will also benefit from additional space comprising five single rooms, one of which is adapted for disabled access, and eight double rooms. The result is an environment conducive to the creation of a dynamic student life.
